About Ricoh Inks - Quality combined with a respectable cost leads to a better end result and a higher margin for you. How does this work? The industrial print heads used in the Ri 3000 and Ri 6000 DTG printers give them an advantage over its competitors. They can jet a much higher viscosity ink, what does this mean? A higher viscosity ink has a much higher concentration of pigment, this results in less ink jetted to obtain a brighter colour or opaque white under base.
The high quality inks used in the Ri 3000 and Ri 6000 cost more to manufacture. That said, in comparison to most they are priced similar if not less, but go a lot further than a DTG ink with a lower concentration of pigment. Despite what you might be told, there are only two other DTG printers in the same category, speed and cost, as the Ri 3000 and Ri 6000, of which non-can jet an ink manufactured to the same viscosity as the RICOH.
Printability - A higher viscosity ink, has another hidden advantage. When printed onto fabric it holds down the fibres, producing a higher quality print on less expensive or high fibre textiles like bamboo and eco freindly produced garments.
